FinallyFinallyFinally! These socks took forever, but I guess when you only work on them once in a while, that’s what’ll happen! At the beginning of June, I picked these up to take to knitting, because, well, they were portable and I didn’t have to think about it. Something clicked while I was working on them, and suddenly, all I wanted to do was finish them already. So I did. I powered out a leg and heel and other leg in no time flat.
These are for Brandt, who loves them, and when the weather turns will wear them alot, guaranteed. I’m modeling them in the above photos, but you get the idea.
I used my basic sock recipe, toe up, short row heel, 3×1 rib throughout. I love the magic of ribbing, but boy did I ever regret it when I got to the leg. In the end I loved knitting them anyway, and will do it again.
I knit them in my Vesper Sock Yarn, in the Hellfire colorway. I stole a skein from the first dyelot ever, I loved this colorway so much. Ravel the details here.
Also! Sign-ups have been up for The Vesper Sock Yarn Summer Club. There are still a handful of spots left, and they will be available until the end of next week, when I ship the July club out.
